Tottenham’s manager must have acknowledged the element of risk in weakening his lineup against a Leicester side who were unbeaten in seven games but everything fell into place in a way that, with a potentially season-defining night in Barcelona looming on Tuesday, affords them the best possible chance of salvaging their Champions League campaign.

Almost immediately their best intentions fell flat.

One of them, Son Heung-min, has discovered his best form in recent weeks and gave Kasper Schmeichel no chance with an exceptional opener; the other, Dele Alli, made things safe after a slick break and the wider benefits of such a comfortable night’s work may become apparent soon enough.

Spurs’ second goal was a tour de force from their front three.

When Puel introduced Marc Albrighton and Rachid Ghezzal from the bench, Leicester appeared primed to have a go.

Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen were only required to make second-half appearances, by which time the game had been won by their two most reliable attacking side-kicks.

Mauricio Pochettino gambled, and saw it pay off handsomely.
